At the Google I/O 2015 developers conference the company showed its vision for Android in 2016, the world’s dominant mobile platform already powers over a billion devices and the company aims to reach out to more. The next iteration of Android doesn’t really have an official moniker just yet and it was only shown off as Android M. Rumor has it that the new software will be released alongside the new Nexus smartphone that’s due by the fall.
Previous reports suggest that Google might launch two Nexus handsets this year with one being produced by LG and the other by Huawei. Now Google and LG have worked on Nexus handsets in the past but it would be the first time that the company teams up with a Chinese manufacturer for a Nexus smartphone.
Android M is reportedly going to arrive with LG’s new Nexus codenamed LG Angler, the handset is expected to boast high-end specifications for a reasonable price tag.
It may come with a Quad HD display above 5 inches, an octacore Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB RAM and perhaps even a USB Type C port.
Major design improvements for the handset are rumored as well but since there’s no confirmation yet from Google regarding this handset, all of this must be taken with a grain of salt for now.
